I knew the second I longed for the sun during the "winter" here in L.A., it would get like it normally is around here- Hot. Since I am a Northern California girl, I melt in Southern California. I've lived here for almost 8 years and I've only gotten a little used to it. When summer rolls around, it's like living on the sun. It's pretty gnarly. I always tell my hubby, "You better be stoked I love you and chose your hometown to buy a home in," as I sit uncomforably writhing in perspiration. Every year, it seems to get a bit hotter, too. Thanks to the rain this season (and El Nino), hopefully the inevitable drought staves itself off a little bit longer this year.
